    Former Employee - LNSP Manager in Melbourne (Australia)

    I worked at Powercor Australia full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Acknowledge leader in Energy Distribution
    Empowerment
    Career opportunities
    Academic training/support
    Work life balance

    Cons

    Office politics
    Inconsistency
    Culture
    Boys club
    Management need P&C empowerment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The direction the company has commitment to go is the right decision. Continuous improvement drives and successful delivery will drive the culture to soaring heights which leave only the best standing. General Managers and below need to separate "buddy" mentality with what is important to the success of this company.

    Considerable staff turnover-newly acquired head office 'talent' move on pretty quickly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the balls to make required changes. Stop giving unions all the power.

    I worked at Powercor Australia full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good city location.

    Cons

    Not a progressive company. Slow people who are not bothered about there work and or have any passion or aspiration and managers have no balls to do anything about it. Company runs as like stuck in 1990's!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up!
